Hong Kong “Never Sleeps” benefits from an excellent infrastructure, and city-dwellers expect it to remain operational at all times.
Footbridges connecting new developments built on both sides of existing railways and roads have become a real challenge.
Everyone -including engineers- brainstormed to come up with all sorts of ideas, most looked like they came out of computer games.
Considering all site constraints and very short time frame entitled to defy gravity with heavy loads, the name of the “game” would easily become “Mission: Impossible X”.
However, this is the exact moment when Freyssinet Hong Kong teams convinced the Authorities and all stakeholders that they would “just do it”.
Execution of these operations look amazing, but you cannot imagine the amount of work required before D day.
Congratulations to the whole team -because this was indeed true teamwork! And we are very proud to be the reference in town for this type of works!
